Hurry back, Mookie Betts. The Red Sox offense finally seems to be feeling the strain of playing without its MVP-caliber leadoff hitter. Sidelined since May 27, Betts has watched the Red Sox struggle to score runs in recent days, including Sunday's 5-2 loss to the White Sox. Without Betts, the Red...

Let's start with the here and the now. The Red Sox lost with Chris Sale on the mound, again. After the White Sox' 1-0 win over Alex Cora's team Friday night, the Red Sox are now just 7-7 in games Sale has started. Considering this is a pitcher who carries a 2.83 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and .198 batting...

We know the names. Giancarlo Stanton. J.D. Martinez. Eric Hosmer. Let's throw another one in the mix: Jose Abreu. As the Red Sox explore options to find that "dinger hitter" (as one young caller to WEEI so aptly articulated), it's worth the time to explore the idea of targeting Abreu as a possible...

When it comes to the Marlins trading Giancarlo Stanton, there has been just a trickle of news. At the GM meetings a week ago, Miami owner Derek Jeter said there were no guarantees he was going to move his highly-paid outfielder. Since then we've gotten the news that the Giants and Cardinals have...

The Red Sox have spent most of the season ranked last in the American League in home runs, but they finally appear to be flipping the power switch. After hitting just 25 home runs during an impotent July, the Red Sox have exploded in August. They scored all but one of their runs in a 6-3 victory...

This isn't a new narrative. The notion that Jackie Bradley Jr. thrives in the No. 9 spot in the lineup has existed for a few years now. Heading into what would be a 4-1 Red Sox win over the White Sox, Bradley carried a .324 batting average and .927 OPS in the batting order's last spot. It's why...

It's good times for the Red Sox these days. Not only are they winning, but they're punctuating most of these things with Gatorade baths. To be exact, after the Sox' 11-inning, 3-2 win over the White Sox Friday night at Fenway Park, four of John Farrell's club's last seven home wins have been of the...

The story of the night seemed like a lay-up. Watching Rafael Devers appear next to Yoan Moncada during Thursday night's game at Fenway Park offered an irresistible comparison. Moncada stood at third base, while his former fellow Red Sox minor leaguer, Devers, resided just a few feet away. What was...

For the Yankees, David Robertson was the key piece in their big trade with the White Sox Tuesday night. For the Red Sox, he wasn't even seriously discussed. According to a major league source, while the Red Sox did engage Chicago in at least some talks for third baseman Todd Frazier, Robertson was...

You need a starting pitcher at the non-waiver trade deadline? Get ready to pay the price. Same thing for diving into the high-end relief pitching market. But the market for third baseman this time around seems to be a different story. The Red Sox clearly have some interest in the White Sox' Todd...
